    I notice WB’s name is nowhere to be found on the press release…

    Is that it for the cast? Seems kind of lowball for a Mann film. Remember the rich supporting casts of Heat, Miami Vice, Public Enemies etc? I hope there are more announcements to come, as so far its basically the Thor guy and some tv guest stars.
